Seattle is excited about the Seattle Mariners once again. After many years of disappointment, hopes are high that this is the year that makes it all worth it. With interest high in the club and Safeco Field again, we wondered if that might mean interest in real estate nearby might be on the rise as well. We already know that the median price per foot nearby is $507, a rapid ascent in just two years. So let's see what that actually means for the condos available nearby.
↑ A sixteen minute walk away in Downtown, Unit 1802 at Millennium Tower is currently available for just under $2.5M. Pricechopped a couple hundred-thousand since listing in December, this 2,720 sf south-facing unit gets you views of the stadium district, though you'd be hard-pressed to say you could see what's going on in the game. This 2002 custom build-out features floor-to-ceiling windows, limestone floors and two bedroom suites.
↑ Next, over in the I District, it's a 17 minute walk from Unit 718 in Tobira (108 5th Avenue S). This place is on the much more affordable side of the spectrum, asking an even $200K (plus $225 HOAs). Though this 442 sf studio space is on the top floor, don't expect any Safeco views. Comes with a Murphy bed, full bathroom, en-suite washer/dryer and secure parking, which comes in very handy.
↑ Just ten minutes away on foot, penthouse unit 504 at 97 S Jackson Street might be the coolest condo of the bunch. Originally asking $999K, it's been chopped to $930K in just over a month. Gorgeous views of surrounding Seattle everywhere, though not of Safeco Field it seems. Sold as one unit, it's actually two units put-together. Some of the standout features include the 580 sf deck just off the bedroom, exposed brick walls & open beam ceilings.
↑ Finally, the closest condo on the list is located in Pioneer Square. Unit 303 at 80 S Jackson Street gives you a four minute walk to the stadium and the $399K asking price leaves you with some spending money to buy one of those pricy Safeco Field beers on tap. It also happens to be a cool-looking loft inside a 1900 building with lots of potential.
